Flowering trees have their own second season of Fall in the heart of Spring.
Like confetti after the parade has passed or the festive leavings of a wedding party, there’s something mildly melancholy about a scattering of petals. This is a picture of discards.
The brown mulch was purpose-made to nurture new life. The fallen petals will contribute as well. If you look carefully at this picture you will see a handful of new green shoots already emerging from this largesse.
Even when we are spent, we still have something to give.
